German newspaper made up facts for years

You don't say....

"Germany’s Der Spiegel Says Reporter Made Up Facts

The disclosure came after a colleague raised concerns about a recent piece on Trump supporters in rural America

Europe faces its largest journalistic scandal in years after Der Spiegel, the continent’s biggest-selling news magazine, said one of its star reporters fabricated facts in his articles for years.

The magazine’s disclosure, which came after a colleague raised concerns about a recent piece on supporters of President Trump in rural America, was made as Europe’s established media faces attacks by populist forces at home and abroad.

Claas Relotius, an award-winning journalist, resigned from the magazine last week after admitting to making up parts of his reporting in the past decade, Der Spiegel said late Wednesday.

Mr. Relotius couldn’t be reached for comment."

Hey man - globalists gonna globalist.  But hey, we should still totally believe every word they say about global warming, immigration, and Trump.

Forgot to mention that the piece of shit who made up the news for years was CNN's "journalist" of the year for 2014.

Naturally.

No word on what got his employer to admit his malfeasance, but I'm guessing it was a slam dunk whistle-blower that they just got in front of.

Always believe your betters

More news on the "reporter" breaking today.... news which CNN is - oddly enough - not bothering to cover:

"An award-winning [by CNN] German magazine writer who resigned in disgrace for making up stories is suspected of embezzling cash he collected on behalf of children orphaned by the war in Syria, according to his former employer.

Der Spiegel said Sunday it had uncovered information that Claas Relotius allegedly solicited contributions after writing an article about Syrian urchins living on the streets of Turkey-- but directed donations to his own bank account.

"Der Spiegel will give all the information it collects to public prosecutors as part of a criminal complaint," the magazine said on its website, according to Agence France-Presse.

The influential publication said it was unaware of the purported charity campaign at the time and didn’t know how much money Relotius, 33, may have raised, apparently by responding to readers who emailed him after reading his July 2016 report.

A Turkish photographer who worked with Relotius has since claimed that the article has major inaccuracies, and Der Spiegel said Relotius apparently invented the two young siblings who featured prominently in it."
-------------------------------------------

When the paper was asked why it took so long to discovery something that should have rang alarm bells at the start, they could only stammer out "Orange man bad!"

Best reporter alive according to CNN
